Could be a seal, clean it off and look to see exactly where it's coming from.

No you shouldn't have to take off the rear shaft. Wipe the area down real good with a rag on the back of the t-case near the flange... and just start watching it where it leaks from. It sounds to me like the rear pinion seal on the case is bad, easy, and relatively cheap fix.

it runs right out from the where the flange is... so it maybe the rear seal.

It is easy. Just remember to mark where the drive shaft bolts on the differential and you will be just fine!
